Overall Satisfaction with WordPress VIP

Elementary Digital is a dedicated WordPress agency operating in the EMEA region. We work with clients looking to create and manage Enterprise-level WordPress websites. The concerns often with WordPress are centered around security, scalability, and performance, which for those who work in WordPress (and the organizations that use it) are not issues. However, one of the key considerations for these concerns is hosting and this is where WordPress VIP steps in. Effectively it's hosting from the organization (Automattic) that develops WordPress and its hosting is closely aligned to the development roadmap of WordPress itself. This, of course, provides great peace of mind for organizations, working directly with the CMS owners and being first in line to ensure security is paramount allowing for scale, reliability, and most important performance.
  • Security - class leading security, ensuring sites are protected and operate hassle free
  • Scalability - provide patches and updates first before the market place
  • Reliability - up to 99.9% up time, with a fantastic track record
  • Performance - hitting the high notes for Core Web Vitals and ensuring WordPress is operating at its peak performance
  • Smaller packages - which typically only operate in the Enterprise space, could offer more cost-effective solutions for smaller organizations
  • Enterprise - providing a true enterprise hosting solution for organizations that ticks all the boxes (especially for IT Directors)
  • WordPress best practice - learning and aligning development methodologies to VIP's best practice
  • Updates - first to receive updates about WordPress ensuring we keep our clients updated
  • Belief and confidence - in the VIP hosting framework ensure our clients are getting the best service
Obviously very knowledgeable about WordPress, both from a hosting and framework point of view. A very friendly, approachable team, and because of the global reach someone is always available.
To date, we've not had any issues and our clients are happy/settled with the hosting. The demands of clients are well managed and the hosting lives up to the performance requirements with ease.
Their management dashboard is improving as they as an organization develop, albeit still some work to do to be as good as some of their competitors. Overall though with some understanding, it's straightforward to use and provides us with what we need.
In the competition noted WordPress VIP is the only true enterprise dedicated to WordPress hosting. Their hosting framework is 100% geared up for providing enterprise organizations with the infrastructure needed.
